A Community of Believers
We were never intended to live the Christian life alone. We are not equipped to live the Christian life alone. Believers are given spiritual gifts that are to be used to bless the whole community. Christ is the head of the community of believers (the Church). The Church are his arms and feet.
The Church should provide believers with the tools, resources, and community to have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We want to help believers understand and share with others how the Gospel has impacted their lives and gives them hope. All Christians are called to participate in equipping and serving one another.
Chris is the pastor of teaching and vision at BCC. He earned his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering and Master of Civil Engineering degrees at Auburn University and his Master of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School. Chris worked as an engineer for 7 years before entering full time vocational ministry. He served at Green Valley Baptist Church as interim youth minister, Sunday school teacher, youth praise team director, preached weekly to Junior High School students, and led Monday School, a Bible study for young adults. After traveling as an itinerate preacher with Wade Morris, Chris helped plant BCC. He is married to Wendi. They have a son, Gibson, and live in Bluff Park (about a half a mile from the church!).
Josh Price is a graduate of Beeson Divinity School and the Executive Pastor at Birmingham Community Church. He helped plant the church over eight years ago with the vision of reaching the lost in the “safety” of the suburbs and loving people well by making Jesus the centerpiece of everything. Ministry has been a part of his life since high school and God has shaped the idea of what it means to love people well over the course of 20 years. Some of his favorite things in life include music, sports, and most notably, his family. He is married to his wife Julia and has three busy children: Sophia, Naomi, and Asher.
Lindsey leads worship at BCC. There hasn't ever been a time in her life when she wasn't involved in church music. She studied vocal performance at Missouri State University, then moved to Birmingham to be a voice teacher. She's participated in worship at BCC since 2013 and has been leading since 2017. She is married to Kendrick (he plays in the worship band too).
Emma drives BCC Kids. She coordinates, encourages, and communicates with all the amazing people that disciple our kids. Loving people as they invest in the kids of BCC each week is her top priority. She enjoys organization and planning and has worked in administration for most of her career after graduating from Auburn University. She has been attending BCC since 2013 with her husband Daniel, and they welcomed a daughter, Lenora, in 2020.
